“I am the keeper of destiny”
If there is one book that got me from start to finish it would be this one, I loved every part of it and yet again I was able to use my imagination on it, even as a 14 year old I was able to shockingly relate to this book. This is second of Z.R Southcombe’s books I have and it doesn’t fail to bring me into excitement and pure bliss as I turn into each page. Have you ever wondered what would it be like if what you always thought wasn’t real actually came to life? Well, if you think so, you should read this book and i’m sure that adventuring with Lucy can give you a feeling of excitement!
When Lucy Carroll began writing ‘The End of the World’ she didn’t want it to actually happen – but destiny had other plans.
Now, locked in the Galaxy Tower with a grumpy captor, a cheery wizard, and all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures, Lucy needs to get back to Earth to somehow restore the planet – and everyone on it – back to life.All Lucy has on her side is the power of imagination, and her newfound friends… but will it be enough?
I would rate this book a 4.7 over 5 stars
I liked almost everything about this book, and most of all I love how I could clearly relate to Lucy. The book started off with a good narration on Lucy- the stories her uncle told her and the roots of her writing about the end of the world. At some points, I could channel the story to the youth today- not wanting to go to school, making weird and robust excuses,but I guess at times I see myself in her, and that I cannot deny.
Another reason why I really enjoyed this book is because it roots back to my love for Science, and after the first few chapters i already got myself hooked to it, in fact it was such a pain to put down. I travelled along with Lucy as if we were side by side, and by far I really enjoyed this book among all the children’s books I’ve ever read.
And just like how Lucy’s imagination was fed by her uncle’s stories, she was able to feed mine in return! I just loved this, this is certainly a must read! I would like to thank Ms. Z.R Southcombe for sending me a copy of her book in exchange of my honest review!
